Sending Happy Thoughts

Hello folks! Happy Friday! I have a really cute card to show you but it will be a super quick post. I have to hurry off to the rest of my day so let's jump right in. Shall we? Today's card uses a Cosmo Cricket paper that I have loved since the minute I saw it. I love the whole collection as a matter of fact! Take a look!

I am so ready to start playing with darker fall colors again. I loved all the cute summer images but the richness of the autumn palette is my perennial favorite. The image is another great digi image. I found this freebie at Cocoa Studio. There were several images that coordinated with it as well. It is perfect for coloring. And on the subject of coloring...this collection of Cosmo Cricket is very easy to match to the Copic line. There are several exact matches and shading was a breeze. That always makes for an easier project!

I think the card is pretty self explanatory so I am off like a prom dress. Oops! Can I say that here? That is getting a little racey for my little G rated card blog huh? Can you forgive me? ;) Anywho, my supplies are listed below if you are wondering about anything. Have a great weekend!
